Fast & Easy Home Cooked Dinners

These days I cook more often due to the good harvest from my garden. My cooking recipes are usually simple and easy to prepare and cook. The following are two simple dinners that I cooked with my home grown vegetables.

1st dinner
Steamed home grown eggplants (brinjals) and stubby okra (ladies fingers). This is drizzled with garlic oil, a mixture of scallop sauce and soy sauce before serving.
Steamed 2 chicken legs (skin removed) with ginger strips, goji berries, salt and Chinese cooking wine. One for hubby and one for me.

2nd dinner
From top left: home grown green (siew pak choy), fried eggs and 2 plates of noodle (dry version). For extra flavour, there is the chili oil as condiment.

Before the monsoon season started, I enjoyed a good harvest from my Purple Jordan fig plant. After diligently wrapping the figs individually with plastic to protect from the birds, I finally get to enjoy my figs. I made sure that moisture is not trapped inside the plastic or else the fruit will spoil.
Too much water from the rain will cause some of the figs to smile or burst open.
Home grown figs loaded with rich minerals and vitamins.

Now, here is a lesson from a fig tree.
When its buds become tender and its leaves begin to sprout,
you know that spring has come.
(Mark 13:28, The Living Bible-TLB)
